FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — A Flagstaff, Arizona, man who was wrongfully arrested on suspicion of selling LSD has sued the city.
Tremayne Nez, who is Navajo, alleges police ignored evidence that showed he wasn't a drug dealer.
Police have said his arrest a year ago was a case of mistaken identity and apologized.
Nez spent more than 30 hours in jail as part of a multi-agency drug operation.
The lawsuit filed this week in U.S. District Court seeks $350,000 in compensatory damages and other amounts to be determined at trial.
A police spokesman declined comment and a city spokeswoman did not immediately provide a response to questions.
